Sozinhos surf lodge and Bungalows sits on the northern tip of Asu Island in Northern Sumatra. Exposed and open to swell we get perfect 200 meter+ barreling waves breaking on our doorstep.

We have 2 rooms, both upstairs with breathtaking sea views, both with private balconies and on suite toilets and showers. PLUS - fishing, diving, SUP, yoga, chilling. Our fishing, snorkeling and SUP equipment are available to use.
10-day trip $1115 - includes airport taxi transfers, accommodation, guided surf/boat trips, 3 meals per day, snacks, tea, coffee, and juice.

About the neighborhood
Asu may be off the beaten track but that's likely what sets it apart from other islands. The lack of crowd could be Asu's biggest draw card. Sozinhos surf lodge is in front of the wave, nestled in the shade of the jungle. Both upstairs rooms have sea views which is unique to Asu island. Our gazebo that has waves lapping on it at spring high tide is the perfect place to chill and take photos. We also trawl for the many large palagic fish that love the warm, clear water that surround these islands. The rock and surf fishing with our spinning gear can also produce a nice fish.
Getting around
Most of Asu has'nt changed for many years and has narrow jungle paths for us to travel on. You can explore further by walking around the island in 3 hours. Surf-guided boat trips are done on favourable swell and wind conditions to other waves in the area. For boat trips to the other surf breaks or for fishing/diving trips we ask the guests to cover the fuel costs.

How to get there
Airport: Binaka: 55.9 mi
Ferry: Teluk Dalam: 55.9 mi
Guests must fly into Medan, preferably on an early flight as the last flights out from Medan to Nias (Gunungsitoli) are between 12:00 & 13:30. It's preferable to fly to Nias with Garuda airlines as they dont over charge for surfboards. We can arrange these flights if you like. We can also arrange a taxi from Gunungsitoli airport to Sirombu where our boat will be waiting to take you to paradise.
